My deepest condolences to the family. I have many memories of Great-Aunt Jennie when I was little. When I was little, my mom (Judy Hansen), Grandma (Lillian Hansen) and I would travel to SD visit and always stayed with Great-Aunt Jennie & Great-Uncle Frank. After my Grandma Lillian’s brother Frank passed away, Jennie would come to Lincoln with Great-Aunt Ellen and they would stay at my Grandma Lillian’s house. I was always so excited to spend time with them when they would visit my Grandma. My fondest memory was writing letters to Jennie all the time when I was little and always so excited to get a letter back from her in the mail. She will be deeply missed and never forgotten.

Our Dad was Jennie’s Uncle on her Dad’s side of the family. Over the years, our family in Nebraska enjoyed many visits with Jennie. My sister (Luella Jahnke) and I were planning a trip to Platte again this year to spend the day with Jennie as we had done in the past few years. Jennie loved our visits and we had such a good time with her too! Also, we both will miss our long phone conversations with her. Jennie, our dear sweet cousin, we will see you again in heaven!!!

My deepest sympathy to the family. Jennie was the last living Aunt on my Mothers side of the family. Many great memories of Uncle Frank and Aunt Jennie and visiting them in Platte.

My heartfelt sympathy to Kirk, Courtleen and the rest of Jennie’s family. She always spoke of you Kirk and I know she was grateful to have you there to watch over her and help her. I have many great memories of spending time in Platte with Aunt Jennie and Uncle Frank and will always treasure those memories. May she Rest In Peace and May the Perpetual Light Shine upon her.
